Howard In Hot Water Again?

Howard's anthem comments in YouTube video draw response from Mavs

DALLAS -- A YouTube video from a charity flag football game in July has Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Howard embroiled in controversy yet again.

The video, from Allen Iverson's event, shows Howard, as the national anthem is being sung, saying: "'The Star-Spangled Banner' is going on. I don't celebrate this [expletive]. I'm black." Howard also makes a hard-to-hear reference to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama (see the video here; some viewers may find content offensive).

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said, according to The Dallas Morning News, that the team dealt with Howard at the time of the incident. He added that the team has a plan in place to address the issue at training camp.

"That said, we will be going through some advanced communication skill sessions together this training camp," Cuban said Tuesday. "I have explained to him that cell phone cameras are not your friend and that what you think you said on camera is never what people will hear when it shows up on YouTube or TV."

i dont mind his opinions but he should just learn that the best way to show them is not a youtube video from a cellphone.

I think he was just joking around, but clearly he needs to show a little more discretion.

Still.. I wouldn't mind him in Toronto...

I think he just had a "Rick James" moment. Like Acie said, it's cool that he speaks his mind, but he has to be a bit more tactful. More often that not, you shouldn't say what you think.
